Dreamweaver MX template issues

Dreamweaver MX template issues

I have created a simple site with about 8-10 pages and have based all of these on a template (Banner at top and nav bar down side). The remaining space has an editable region defined.

I have two issues...

1 - When I add text with bullet points to one of the pages it has altered the template so now all my nav buttons are spread apart. It generally seems a little unstable. Take a look at the FAQ's page on this site to see what I mean. <snip>
Any ideas as to why this is happening?

2 - I would like to add text and images into the editable region of my template and want to have the freedom to move image locations in this editable region around from page to page. As far as I can see you can only add images on a line of text and can't insert a layout cell inside this editable region? Can anyone suggest a solution?

First of all you are not allowed to post URLs on this forum.

It looks like your problem is that you are relying on Dreamweaver without understanding much about what is going on in the HTML. I would suggest that you learn a bit more about CSS before attempting to create your own website. that way you will have a chance of understanding what has gone wrong.

Your images problem can be solved by using simple floats in the CSS.

img.OnLeft {
float: left;
}

img.OnRight {
float: right;
}

BeeDeeDubbleU,

I don't quite understand your reply. I am using table based design not CSS (other than for text).

That's a problem then. Tables are very limited when used for image placement.
